BBC News – Durham Business School role for Ushaw College

January 17, 2012 Leave a comment

A Roman Catholic college in County Durham is to have a new role as a business school.

As home to St Cuthbert’s Seminary, Ushaw College trained entrants for the priesthood for more than 200 years.

Its closure in June 2011 led to fears about the future of the historic building, just outside Durham City.

Durham Business School will be based there temporarily during the multi million-pound development of its site on Mill Hill Lane.

The £16.6m rebuilding and expansion work is expected to take about two years.

Ushaw College can trace its roots back to Douai College, which was founded in 1568 in the Spanish Netherlands, now northern France.

October 27, 2011 Leave a comment

A new social networking site that’s geared towards your local area, use this to chat about stuff happening in Ushaw Moor.

Streetlife makes it easy to connect and share with your neighbours.

From vid on youtube.

Social networking has changed the world, but to be honest, it can be a little…frivolous. Which is fun now and again, but trying to find someone local to talk about something meaningful can be frustrating. Say you want to meet like-minded people nearby, or share skills and possessions? What if you’ve got important news to tell your neighbors, or you want to volunteer in your local community? Knocking on doors is awkward, you never have time to talk over the garden fence, and your social network’s no use, because it only connects you with people you already know. And they could live…ANYWHERE.

Epipheo Studios shows you how Streetlife gives you an easy way to find people nearby in the UK who care about the place you call home.
